From his lighthouse studio, where he has built up an analogue haven in the old light room, the choppy waters of the Thames lie in one direction, and the urban sprawl lies in the other. He rarely plays live and never publishes any photos of himself. His acclaimed first album 'Out of Time' received rave reviews and spawned a host of fans thanks largely to BBC 6 Music, where songs such as 'Amsterdam' and 'A Bigger Man' were ably supported by Lauren Laverne, Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie. The vinyl edition sold out at Rough Trade in only a few weeks.\nThere are influences: His first album was described by Richard Smirke in the Big Issue as 'a gorgeously rich slice of crystalline pop that evokes classic records by the Walker Brothers, Love, and Burt Bacharach an exquisite debut album However, the sound is his own, beautiful and darkly funny songs, tinged with irony and rich in observation. \nHe is now hard at work on a follow up album, intended for release later this year. Having commandeered a barge, he and the band have set off round the waterways of the English countryside in their floating studio. The first single 'Idiot' was again supported by BBC6 Music, and also by John Kennedy on Radio X. It was also chosen by Geoff Lloyd on Absolute Radio as his Record of the Week.\nIn lieu of the album, Paperface is celebrating the launch of an EP, 'Mr Wrong', with a rare acoustic gig at The Green Note. He is blessed to have a group of musicians that are prepared to follow him wherever he goes. Despite most of them now living in France, they simply get on their tour bus and make their way to where they are needed. On their last outing, which included a live recording in the BBC Radio Wales studios in Cardiff and a packed show at the Union Chapel in London, the band were subjected to an 8 hour ferry crossing owing to bad weather, but simply chose to rehearse throughout; such is the love they feel for this mysterious man and his music.\nBeguiling, clever, sad, and really funny at the same time I love this! \nLauren Laverne, BBC6 Music\nThe Mysterious 'Paperface' my record of the week. Brilliant! Geoff Lloyd, Absolute Radio\n \nOn my 6Music Recommends show, Paperface got a big response from listeners absolutely beautiful Stuart Maconie, BBC6 Music \nI've been an idiot for not playing that sooner. Excellent! John Kennedy, Radio X \nMr Wrong is something really special Chris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music\nSupport from LULA\nLula started out in 2009 after leaving the Brit School to follow her passion for writing music.
